The first Chicago Architecture Biennial will take place from October 2015-January 2016, with a theme of "The State of the Art of Architecture."

The biennial has just announced a "Lakefront Kiosk Competition" to design a kiosk for Chicago's waterfront for use by visitors during and after the biennial, Archinect reports.

The only requirements for the kiosk are that it serve a commercial function during the summer and as a yearround attraction in and of itself. Anyone can enter the competition, as long as your team is led by someone with an accredited architecture degree. 

"The [Lakefront Kiosk Competition] calls for the inventive design of a new kiosk that will be installed on Chicago’s lakefront, one of the city’s most vibrant public spaces," the announcement said. "A jury of architects, curators, and city representatives will select one winner to receive the BP Prize, which includes an honorarium for design development and a construction budget to realize the design."

The jury will include architects David Adjaye and Jeanne Gang. You can check out the competition here.
